    I read on the old internet today that an oil exploration company in Houston Texas gave all its employees (all 1,300+) a $100,000 Christmas bonus EACH. Now that's what I call a BONUS. Apparently this same company a few years ago gave everyone a choice of a $50,000 car or $35,000 in cash. Who says the declining oil prices has hurt the oil companies?

    A Minnesota company (Andersen Windows) gives out yearly bonuses based on yearly profits. They have been as high as 6 or 7 thousand per employee and they have a bunch of workers. There have also been the "no bonus" years.

    I saw that story and said, that is a lot of money, wonder what the average employee makes there, if that doubles their pay or what.
